Help with programming an event


Recommended Posts

I am trying to store a variable (Current speed) read from a certain train.

I want to read the current speed of the locomotive at all times and then store it as a variable and check

to see if the current speed is not 0.

If it is not, I plan to trigger a series of events.

Unfortunately I am still on V6.   

I can read the speed, but not check to see if it is zero.

Regards

Curtis

Hello Curtis,
This is not what you asked for. And Bahnland gave you the appropriate answer. But still ...

Would it help you to know that a train which stops can trigger a dedicated event?

Hi Curtis,

Bahnland's suggestion is not working because the event is not triggered. A user-defined event needs a call. For instance, you could use a timer, set to 1 sec and 'automatic restart' set true. That will give you a tick every second.

Next you use the event 'timer expires' and put the code in there, instead of a user-defined event.

Hope that helps.

It does indeed help.   

I got it to do just what I wanted.

timers.thumb.jpg.d203408a1b071d9a31b60fc84dedb9a8.jpg

I used two timers of 2 seconds, offset by one second so that a timer expires every second.

I set up 2 timer expires events with one for each timer.  Condition was as everyone has said except condition, not event.

One timer shuts off the front jets, and starts the back jets.  The other times turns on the front jets and shuts off the back jets.

Here the Back Jet is shutting off and the Front Jet is opening.

 

Much thanks and regards

Curtis.
